For many, their biggest fear is a severe head or spinal injury. Either can permanently affect their mobility, personality, and quality of life. For many victims, the changes are permanent and irreversible. Even treatable conditions can take months or years and lead to thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in bills. This is in combination with lost work, severe changes to your family, and tremendous pain and suffering.
There are no winners in such injuries. The severity of brain injuries can take many forms and come with a tremendous number of complications. A Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, caused by an accident is a devastating diagnosis.
When injured in such a manner, it is important to work with your family, doctor, and attorney to determine the exact amount of damage that has been done to you. Common issues, such as the cost of immediate treatment and lost work could be just the tip of the iceberg. In addition, there could be other issues not even considered early in the process.
Brain Injuries are a Complex Problem When Determining the True Costs
Being able to adequately determine the true cost of the injury is complex– a bit of combining actuarial math with medical science. The sheer cost of therapy can reach into the millions. You attorney and doctor can work together to estimate your lifetime cost of such rehabilitation and get it paid in full. You can also fit in the cost of your medications and psychological stress. Many people also lose significant quality of life, including their ability to spend time with their family, consort with their significant other, and general damages.
- The Many Factors That Need to Be Calculated in Resolving a TBI Claim
There is no pain or problem too small to examine. Each one can cascade with other factors to completely reshape an injury victim’s life and cause them to be unable to successfully lead the life that they did previously or wanted to. They may be confined to a wheelchair or cognitively impaired. No matter what the injury, making sure that you are at the best condition to meet it is necessary.
